About

Formed in the summer of 2008, the superlative Chatham Saxophone Quartet was named after the Dublin street on which its members first met. Runaway winners of Music Network's Young Music-wide Award in 2012, the quartet has repeatedly won plaudits for its bravura performances and versatility. With an eclectic repertoire spanning contemporary, classical and jazz genres, as well as performing multimedia works using tapes, tracks and visuals, this unique ensemble pushes the boundaries of what we expect from a saxophone quartet.

The quartet's members all actively compose and arrange new works for the group. They have also worked closely with the Vanbrugh Quartet and the RTÉ Contempo String Quartet in transcribing the string quartet repertoire for wind instruments, as well as performing regularly on RTÉ radio.
